and new york who went through this hideous, this horrible superstorm sandy and now don't have the relief and congress goes home? >> well, you're absolutely right. it is incomprehensible. you're right. in vermont we suffered, and now in new jersey and new york people are suffering. but as you know, we passed an emergency relief program, disaster relief program, for sandy. we passed it in the senate. >> i know you did. >> our republican friends in the house chose not to do with it -- to deal with that issue, and i think that is a real tragedy. >> senator, thanks for joining us today. again, happier 2013 to you. >> happy new year to you as well. >> thanks. >>> stocks are soaring, first trading day of the new year, the market is buoyed by a better than expected report. joining me, ruth marcus, also greg yip. welcome both. the markets just reacting to this last-minute deal? other fundamentals that you are looking at? >> mostly it is the deal. the deal does three things that the markets are happy about, number one, taxes in the new year, number two, removes some of the uncertainty about fiscal
to which he's referring, that could be a failure to vote on a relief package for superstorm sandy. the vote was abruptly pulled back by speaker boehner last night delaying the bill until the 113th congress which convenes tomorrow. gop leadership apparently determined the house shouldn't even try for $60.4 billion in new spending on a night it added $4 trillion to the deficit. and congressman king is not the only one outraged that politics took precedence over people. >> republicans in congress brought this house to a new low last night. >> we're all hit hard enough with the recession. on top of that now we have to deal with the anxiety and the failure of congress to act. >> talk to the people. look into their eyes. understand their needs. come walk with me, mr. speaker. >> this is time to stop debating and take the gloves off. jersey style. >> and speaking of jersey style, governor chris christie came out swinging this afternoon. >> shame on you. shame on congress. on a political chess board of internal palace intrigue politics, our people were played last night as a pawn. and that's why pe
is promising a vote on a bill that would provide relief for the victims of superstorm sandy as early as friday. this new effort comes after a day of sharp such from both sides of the aisle. democrats and republicans are upset that boehner decided last night to pull a vote on the $60 billion bill. they say the money is needed right now, but people are hurting. the storm rallied today, but they are signs that investors erelief may not last long. fights over the debt ceiling and budget are looming. >> those looming aspects of the crisis such as sequestration have a major impact on virginia. david culver reports that even lawmakers in the same party can agree on the best action to take. >> reporter: we spoke with two democratic congressmen from northern virginia. nomarally they vote the same on big issues, but when it comes to this fiscal cliff legislation, they were on opposite side both democrats, both representing northern virginia, but on this issue of the fiscal cliff, they did not great. congressman connolly voting for the legislation. >> this was not a very solution-oriented congress, but t
the aid relief package for those struggling in the aftermath of superstorm sandy. the congress will close without that legislation being handled. the senate had approved a package of $60.4 billion in aid and the house appropriations committee came up with a smaller deal of about $27 billion. but since the laws don't carry over from session to session now we're going to have to start all over again. house speaker john boehner's office says he is committed to passing that aid before the end of the month but that, of course, does nothing for people who need the money right now. and just before the break president obama nominated senator john kerry to succeed hillary clinton when she decides to step down. that will leave an opening in the senate. many people think scott brown who lost to elizabeth warren in november will run again but there's new concern amongst democrats that brown instead may try to run for governor. that's another option for him. see if he runs against representative ed markey and loses, that would pu

from both parties outraged. superstorm sandy inflicted tens of billions of dollars of damage to states along the east coast and it seems like relief for this kind of disaster and all the suffering would be above politics. it would seem. well, it was, yeah, sure, with the lawmakers promising to get it done until they didn't and just went home. no vote. no money. dana bash is going to join me from capitol hill with all of the fincger pointing and how congress is now scrambling to fix it and survivors of sanity hook, they're going to head back to school tomorrow. gary tuckman is going to tell us what the students and teachers are going to be facing as those classes resume nearly three weeks after that deadly attack. we'll have those stories, as well as an interview with a state lawmaker who took a shot at a holiday with a press release, why must we still hear about kwanza tonight, it's number three. >> thanks very much. >> just a little different. >> all right. our fifth story "outfront," president obama talking tough in a very serious and aggressive way. would put -- to shame because whi
